SlashGear Review: Palm Series 3 Bluetooth Headset

SlashGear Review: Palm Series 3 Bluetooth Headset

So the people at Palm were kind enough to send me their latest Bluetooth headset offering, the Series 3, for review. I have had it for about 2 weeks and I have been using it a lot, primarily with my Helio Fin, but I paired it with the Centro I have here too.

It works amazingly well. I truly was impressed, I have a Jawbone sitting around here, and the Palm, in my opinion, worked better than it. Part of that was due to the fact that the Palm headset has easy to use buttons, where as with the Jawbone I had to nearly drive the damn thing into my skull.

The best of Bluetooth?

The best of Bluetooth?

Ah, nothing like a good review on a Sunday.  And I'm particularly keen to read about this little gadget, Aliph's apparently incredible Jawbone Bluetooth Headset, which promises deeply efficient noise-cancellation thanks to a whole fancy array of microphones.  Doug Goldring decided to take a stroll round Washington DC to see if it lived up to the hype, and came away surprised.

Aliph bone-conduction Bluetooth headset reviewed

Looks like we're going bone conduction crazy - next up is Julie Strietelmeier's review of the Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth Headset.  You might remember the Jawbone from the tail-end of last year; while it looks like a normal headset, albeit a particularly stylish one, it actually picks up sound conducted through your jaw rather than relying solely on a traditional microphone.  The promise is far better sound quality, which is exactly what Julie set out to test...

Aliph Jawbone Headset is Red Hot and Advanced

Aliph Jawbone Headset is Red Hot and Advanced

The latest Aliph Jawbone headset may be red hot and sexy, but don’t mistaken it for just another dinky device for the fashion-conscious. This redesigned Aliph Jawbone is Bluetooth enabled and uses advanced military noise-canceling technology that incorporates an array of microphones.

However, according to Gizmodo, the headset unfortunately lacks a good wind guard. But, the looks may make up for it. Designed by the talented industrial designer, Yves Behar, this headset comes in red, black, and silver from Cingular. Priced at $120 and is now available. Check out this site for more info.

WristBoom: Because a wearable speaker isn’t entirely crazy

WristBoom: Because a wearable speaker isn’t entirely crazy

I was all ready to trash WristBoom, and then I thought of my grandmother. Well, alright, there were a couple of stages in-between, but I had to drop the “cynical geek” persona and think outside the bubble to properly appreciate a chunky Bluetooth speaker you wear strapped to your wrist. And, while I’m still not sure this is the product the world has been holding its breath for, that’s not to say I’m unconvinced by its odd charms.

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

What does it take to create a smartphone design classic? For the HTC One M9, the answer is relentless refinement, improving what worked in its metal-bodied predecessors rather than chasing the latest trends. The smartphone spec arms-race is relentless, however, notable as much for its hyperbole as the minimal attention span of would-be buyers in carrier stores. If you can’t make your case in seconds, you’re going to lose the sale. Amid fierce competition, HTC doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record of playing up its strengths and capitalizing on its advantages. Has that changed in the One M9?

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

When Amazon wades into a new segment, competitors take note, and few devices have been so nervously anticipated as the Fire Phone. Amazon's first smartphone doesn't just put Prime in your pocket, it also pushes the limits of UI, with its quartet of Dynamic Perspective cameras, and computational photography, with Firefly. Ambitious, then, but Jeff Bezos & Co. have seldom lacked that. Question is, does the Fire Phone deserve to be the hottest handset in town?

Plantronics Voyager Edge Review

Plantronics Voyager Edge Review

Plantronics knows a thing or two about Bluetooth headsets, being one of the stalwarts of the industry, but the new Voyager Edge still has something unusual to it. Fitting in-between Plantronics’ Legend and Discovery lines of earpieces, the Voyager Edge claims to pair the performance of the former with the style of the latter, in a headset suitable for both home and office. There’s some strong competition from Jawbone’s Era, however; read on to find out which deserves a spot on your ear.

Plantronics Voyager Edge hands-on

Plantronics' latest Bluetooth headset, the Voyager Edge, wants to be all things to all people. Slotting into the company's Voyager range - known for their excellent performance but, even Plantronics admits, somewhat "call center" appearance - but with the style of the more consumer-centric Discovery range, the Voyager Edge is also Plantronics' first real attempt to reposition Bluetooth headsets as smart wearables, not just accessories. We caught up with the company to try the Voyager Edge out and see what makes it so special.
